Gouverneur K. Warren (1830-1882)

Gouverneur Kemble Warren was a brevet major general of volunteers in the Union Army. Warren was a topographical engineer and taught mathematics at West Point. At Gettysburg he ascended Little Round Top, the key to the army's position, and found it undefended. Warren brought troops just in time and became known as the "Savior of Little Round Top." However he angered Meade for disobeying orders at Mine Run. Warren's downfall came when he irritated the hot-tempered Sheridan by moving too slowly at Five Forks; Sheridan removed him from command. Warren was not granted a court of inquiry until 1879. When the court exonerated him in 1882, Warren had just died. Heartbroken, he had left instructions that he be buried without his uniform and without any patriotic display.
